Bills trade Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati to move up in 1st round

Bills trade Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati to move up in 1st round

The Buffalo Bills have been among the busier teams, and they made another bold move on Monday, reportedly trading left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals, per ESPN's Josina Anderson. Perhaps they can pair their newly-acquired first- and third-round picks to trade up higher into the draft.

The trade will now see the Bills take a step closer to landing their desired future franchise quarterback, moving up to 12th in the draft, while the Bengals move down to 21st overall. He has been the Bills' starter at left tackle for six seasons since they picked him in the 2012 draft.

Glenn struggled with injuries after signing a five year, 60 million dollar contract in May of 2016.

Still, if that happens, the Bills could likely get a nice consolation price in former USC quarterback Sam Darnold, assuming they are able tor trade their way into the top five.




And they may have to, considering that they do not now have much available at quarterback after they traded their starter, Tyrod Taylor, to the Cleveland Browns for the top pick in the third round. Buffalo now owns the 12th overall pick and the 22nd pick from their prior deal with Kansas City. As a rookie, Dawkins proved more than capable of filling that role.

Glenn is due a $2 million roster bonus this week and, according to Over The Cap, he will carry a cap hit of $11.25 million in 2018, something the Bills do not want to be tied to. If the teams finalize the deal by Sunday, the Bills will save $4.85 million against the 2018 cap, according to the Buffalo News .

"Somewhat of a frustrating year overall", Bills coach Sean McDermott said in December, adding Glenn would undergo surgery on his foot in hopes of returning to health this offseason. He missed five games and played a career-low 657 snaps in 2016.
